Early Music Vancouver presents the Pacific Baroque Orchestra in Le Mozart Noir on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 8pm at the Vancouver Playhouse. One of the greatest composers of the early classical period, Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges was the son of a slave and one of the earliest musicians of the European classical tradition to have African ancestry. Boulogne overcame adversities of class, race, and prejudice to become a major musical star all over Europe, inspiring both Mozart and Haydn. This programme includes several of Boulogne’s violin concertos, orchestral works by Mozart, and one of Haydn’s Paris Symphonies. The event will be preceded with a free, open to the public screening of a documentary on Le Mozart Noir featuring Toronto’s Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra.
